Lug Infinity ∞ Lacing
Specifically for shoes with lugs, this lacing resembles a series of infinity "∞" symbols. This lacing works
best with thinner shoelaces because each lug needs to accommodate two passes of shoelace.
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• Cross the ends, running diagonally across and down the shoe, feeding back into the bottom of the
adjacent lug on the opposite side. There will already be a lace running through that lug, so this will be a
• Run the ends straight up through those lugs, then continue straight up and through the next higher set
of lugs up the shoe.
• Repeat crossing the ends and feeding up through lugs until lacing is completed.
